Find Your Fit: The Ergonomic Equation

Get into the zone—your comfort zone, that is

Consider the ergonomic equation your guide to the most important aspects of ergonomics. We’ve collected the best tools and resources all in one place to help you optimize the ergonomics in your own workspace. Find your fit and embrace the feel-goodness.

Number 1

Neutral Posture

Properly position your display, mouse and keyboard
The result is less strain and fatigue and more energy… more + 
This gets you into your “power zone.” It minimizes stress to your body by naturally encouraging a posture that’s comfortable and requires little energy expenditure, with your elbows close to your core, shoulders open and chin and forearms level with the floor.
Number 2

Voluntary Motion

Incorporate movement into computing routine
This relieves posture fatigue, it’s like pushing the reset button… more +
Great for ergonomics and general wellness. Moving from one posture to the next—especially sitting to standing— helps prevent the cumulative hazards of poor posture and too much sitting while improving circulation, calorie-burn and insulin management.
Number 3

Rest Time

Take brief and frequent breaks
Standing up can be a recuperative posture after sitting a while… more +
This allows your body to rest and recuperate. But don’t assume that rest means sitting! It’s actually a break from whatever posture you’ve been holding. Standing up can be a recuperative posture when you’ve been sitting a while. Taking breaks at regular intervals and adding occasional stretching is a great way to relax your eyes, wrists and body.

The right mount will give you the maximum amount of flexibility to get into the right ergonomic zone. By simply following this list of ergonomics tips, you’ll decrease the strain on your body and reduce risk of repetitive stress injuries (RSI).

Stand Up for your Health

Studies find a strong correlation between long periods of sitting and elevated risk of mortality. Excessive sitting impacts our body’s metabolic system, while standing increases energy, burns extra calories, tones muscles, improves posture, increases blood flow and ramps up metabolism.
